There is a need for non-hormonal contraceptives. One area that needs further investigation is the development of male contraceptives. Comparatively little is understood about potential drug targets in men to achieve a reversible contraceptive effect. In this article, we review the need for male contraceptives and some thoughts around the characteristics of a male contraceptive and the potential development pathway. We then discuss different potential approaches to discovering male contraceptives and then highlight potential targets that have been discussed in the literature.
